some things I learned ( about us) at the roadschool convention

We are comfortable with who we are. We may not use the most expensive, popular or any one curriculum but that's ok. There is a diversity of income as well as educational philosophies out here on the road. But at the end of the day you have more in common than different.

We are risk takers.... or maybe faith followers... or perhaps just plumb crazy.

We love our lifestyle. It's very freeing to be nomadic. Getting to meet new people & see treasured friends ( both within the fulltime rv community & outside of it) along the way. There is always something new to see or amazing to explore.

There are quite a few ways to make money on the road.

Take pictures. LOTS of them. The souvenirs don't last but capturing the memorable moments is priceless.

Everyone has their own style. What works for you may ... or may not... work for another rv family. But sharing stories & learning from each others triumps & even mistakes can be encouraging.

Don't presume to know it all. As soon as you think you do it will be clear that you do not.

Don't compare your kids to other kids. Each child is a blessing & remembering that even those differences make the journey that much more amazing.

Life is too short to be grumpy. Forgive quickly and love others ( noy just those that are like you) richly.

Don't wish for what you don't have. Be thankful. Enjoy.

Give generously. Share a meal, a smile, a hug, a word of encouragement. Life is also too short to be lonely. To find friends you need to be friendly.

Don't be afraid to start a conversation with someone new... it may be yet another amazing person or family
